Pahrump Justice Court reopens after 2-week closure

Updated July 21, 2020 - 9:43 am

Pahrump Justice Court reopened its doors Tuesday, two weeks after shutting down because court officials had been exposed to the coronavirus.

The court resumed office hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, according to an email from Nye County spokesman Arnold Knightly.

While the court was closed to in-person hearings, officials held essential hearings, such as first appearances, bail hearings and arraignments, via videoconference.

As during the closure, protective orders may be obtained through online applications or at the Nye County Sheriff’s Office.
